About Mike Hewitt
I grew up in St. Mary’s County and my wife, Elaine, and I have raised our children here. For 38 years we owned and operated Hewitt’s Service Center, a small business on Three Notch Road in Lexington Park. We sold our business and retired on January 1, 2017 but remain active in our community. We love St. Mary’s County and are delighted that our daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren have chosen to live and raise their families here. While our son, daughter-in-law and their two children live in Houston, Texas we are hopeful they will relocate to the County and enjoy the good life St. Mary’s has to offer.
However, for St. Mary’s County to continue to thrive as a County, we must address the State’s attempts to push increased spending down onto the County as well as the economic uncertainty posed by federal sequestration and furloughs. In addition, we must keep an eye on the development that threatens our idyllic way of life.
This is why I am running for re-election to the Board of County Commissioners. I believe we have a better likelihood of weathering these challenges if we act now with due diligence and consensus.
